Fort Island Trail Beach Lawnchair Sunset Field Trip
Citrus County Audubon Society has scheduled a special evening birding field trip at Fort Island Trail Beach for Wednesday, February 27, 2013. The public is welcome to attend. Preregistration is not necessary and participants with all levels of birding skills are welcome.
It begins at 4:30 pm, will involve some easy walking, and will last until 30 minutes after sundown. Bring your favorite lawn chair, binoculars and/or scopes, bug spray and a camera for those great sunset pictures.
Fort Island Trail Beach, the only public beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Citrus County, is a small sandy beach located at the end of the scenic Fort Island Trail road in Crystal River. It is listed as a birding location in the Great Florida Birding Trail network. In addition to being a great place to see beautiful sunsets, it is also a terrific place to observe a wide variety of shore birds including gulls, terns, skimmers, sandpipers, plovers, and more.
